Miriam Bohondoney, blog contributor and folk herbalist born and raised on the west coast, has been studying the art and science of herbalism since childhood. Primarily self taught from books and experience, she had the good fortune to attend a year long herbalism course taught by naturopathic doctor and herbalist Dr. Sharol Tilgner. In recent years she has had the opportunity to study at the Columbines School of Botanical Studies and learn from acclaimed herbalist Howie Brounstein. In addition to writing for the Mountain Rose Herbs blog, Miriam is an avid student of aromatherapy and formulates her own natural perfume line using botanicals and pure essential oils. She is a trained pastry chef and baker. During her free time she enjoys dancing, singing, crafting alchemical potions, spending time with loved ones, and practicing Qigong.
